N ational Days of Action to Protest Israel’s Attack on Gaza Flotilla and Israeli Blockade Set for June 4 and 5 in Washington, D.C., New York City, San Francisco, Los Angeles and Nationally


Click here to find a demonstration near you. On Friday, June 4 and Saturday, June 5, demonstrations will take place across the country and around the world to protest the murderous attack by the Israeli army on seven boats carrying humanitarian aid to Gaza. At least nine volunteer aid workers were killed and dozens seriously wounded.


Please see our editorial: A Message for Memorial Day: American Soldiers Must Stop Dying in Combat for Israel

The response to the latest Israel atrocity is global and powerful. Let us make this a defining movement in the Palestinian peoples’ struggle for justice and self-determination.

Israel has maintained a blockade on Gaza – an impoverished area home to 1.6 million Palestinians – for more than three years. The attack on the Gaza Freedom Flotilla was an act of piracy and a war crime carried out in international waters.


A ttempting to turn reality upside-down, the Israeli military is now posing as the “victim” in this incident. Israel is only able to carry out massacres like this and the ongoing oppression of the Palestinian people due to the huge military, economic and diplomatic support it receives from the U.S. government.


June 5 will mark the 43rd anniversary of the 1967 war, when Israel conquered the West Bank and Gaza, along with Syria’s Golan Heights, all areas that Israel continues to occupy to this day.


Now is the time to make your voice heard! Join us to say:


End the Blockade of Gaza NOW!

Justice for the Victims of the
Gaza Freedom Flotilla – Prosecute Israel for War Crimes!

Cut All
U.S. Aid to Israel!

End Colonial Occupation – Self-Determination for the Palestinian People!

Support the Right of Return!


In Washington, D.C., protesters will gather at the White House (north side) at 5:00 pm.


Cities holding demonstrations also include Los Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco, San Jose, Santa Rosa, California; New York City, New York; Seattle, Washington; Sioux Falls, South Dakota; and Tampa, Florida.

Quote of the Day

Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence.Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent.Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb.Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts.Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.~Calvin Coolidge~
